The extended repair program is for 4 years from original date of purchase. My MBPro was bought in June 07- more than 4 years ago. The genius bar diagnosed it as failed NVIDIA but refused to replace it under the program because it's more than 4 years. What BS...what difference does it make how long it's been, if it hasn't been replaced and it's in the list of affected MBPros it's still in the list of affected machines. I would have brought it in a long time ago, or even when they had the class-action suit but because it wasn't exhibiting symptoms then they wouldn't do anything. Now I'm out a laptop which is in excellent condition.
